    Default Tulip time

    The tulips came up from under all that mulch. The hostas are leafing out and we are expecting a hard freeze tomorrow. Too bad. But I sure am enjoying todays great sunshine.Click image for larger version.

    Love your beautiful tulips. They look like they are light within with the sun.

    Spring came really early this year here. The daffodils finished blooming over a week ago. The periwinkles are blooming, the iris are in bud, and the cannas are already 9" tall. The first two of our four resident hummingbirds just returned from their southern migration yesterday. Sadly we are supposed to have a hard freeze on Friday night. I hope it doesn't kill our hummingbirds.

    Our visiting flock of wild turkeys has increased in size this year. Spotted 3 tom turkeys and six hens this year,

    I love tulips. My neighbor brought me some for Easter. I hope to plant them outside in a few weeks when their done blooming.

    Things are starting to move here in WV too. My elderberrys are getting good sized leaf buds, my early roses are just starting to sprout tiny leaf buds and the peony has broken ground. I don't see anything going on with the hosta yet or my trillium. But I know Spring is coming. :-) We had our first thunderstorm of the season this afternoon too.

    Of course, we live at almost a mile high elevation, so my tulips just have green leaves at this point. No blooms yet. However, the hyacinths are in full bloom. I've had a couple daffodils open up. It's amazing the power in bulbs; they push up through almost everything to spread their spring joy.

    Hostas & tulips are hardy, they probably will survive your freeze.

    So jealous! Daffodils are my favorite flowers and they just don't grow here - neither do any of the other beautiful spring bulbs.

    Terry, Your tulips are so pretty!

    There are signs of Spring here also. The Daffs are everywhere, the forsythias are robed in brilliant yellow, tulips and phlox are doing well. Our hostas are poking new leaves out and our Bradford pear trees are in full bloom. It's 21 degrees this morning, not good for Spring plants and fruit trees. The Dogwoods should bloom in a few weeks.

    Very pretty tulips. Your hostas are a lot farther along than mine.
    Lots of wild turkeys here, too. What's up with that?

    Wow, our daff's are out but not the tulips. Now that makes me wonder. As in, did the moles eat the bulbs? I swear the only good thing those little moles and voles are good for are being cartoon characters in movies. Your tulips are so pretty and love the array of color! Enjoy

    Ahh. I look forward to the bulbs show. I did have something peeking from the side yard flower bed a week ago. Unfortunately, I also saw that something has tried to dig them out. Probably the rabbit. We won't be seeing tulips until early-mid May. We got nasty winds, snow and freezing rain last night and it's expected to continue until the weekend. Yucky.

    In the meantime, I buy cut tulips for indoor enjoyment.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    We had an old-fashioned thunder storm at midnight last night. 78 degrees yesterday, and 32 tonight. Another few days and we'll be in full bloom. Daffodils have been up for a week, tulips are in color, pear trees are finished, dogwoods showing color. I love all the seasons, but spring is my favorite.
